Pregnancy: Week 8
I wrote this post back in August when I was eight weeks pregnant, and absolutely over the moon following our first scan. Now that I’ve made the official announcement, I’m finally publishing and sharing it.
Normally I wait until the end of each week to write my weekly update – but I can’t help it tonight! I had my scan today! According to my own dates, I am 8 weeks 3 days pregnant, and according to the scan, I’m 8 weeks 2 days pregnant. Perfect! On Little Man the scan was two days different to my dates – and it didn’t matter in the end because he arrived 10 days early!All I cared about today was that everything looks healthy and good. And it does! Oh the relief! I won’t lie – I was sick with nerves beforehand. I could barely hold a conversation I was so worried. I was way more nervous than I was last time around if I’m honest. I was just thinking, I’m older, I’m not as fit as I was with Little Man, what if, what if, what if…
So now, all I feel is relief. There wasn’t much to see today – a little peanut shaped blob, not even an inch long. But it was our blob! And its little heart was beating away strongly – a little fast. That’s an indicator of a boy right? – according to those old wives tales anyway! 😉
